Good Chilly Morning!
Our cooler temps are still hanging around, but it is November after all. I think by the weekend though it is supposed to be in the 60's. If that holds, I think we will be walking on Sunday in Valley Forge Park with Colin & Mailing. Fingers crossed. Saturday morning I have plans for Chatter Knitting with Dee...looking forward to that for sure.
On this Unraveled Wednesday, I'm linking up with Kat and friends to talk about what I'm knitting and reading. First up, the second sock is at the halfway mark on the leg.
I should be able to finish the leg shortly and move on to the Eye of the Partridge heel and then down the foot. Yesterday I put this aside and instead picked up this
That's my Antler Hat (freebie pattern from TinCan Knits) that I started a hundred years ago (September). I had knit the ribbed brim and then promptly put it down and let it sit on top of a bookcase in my office. With this much cooler weather, I had the urge to work on it. The yarn is Lamb's Pride worsted (85%Wool and 15% Mohair) in the colorway "Bing Cherry." I'm using a size 8 needle and between the needle and the worsted weight, my fingers and hands are feeling it! Despite the aching fingers, this is moving along fairly quickly and I should be able to finish this up quickly as well. This may be for Colin...I have not fully decided yet.
On the reading front I stopped at my library the other day and picked up the latest from one of my favorite authors - Ursula Hegi. The book is "The Patron Saint of Pregnant Girls." I will confess that I'm having a difficult time getting into it though. It seems disjointed somehow. Have any of you read this? It may be that I've only picked it up right before bed when I am pretty tired. Maybe I'll try to read some earlier in the day or evening today.
Hope you all have a wonderful day. Be sure to check out Kat's blog to see what others are making and reading.
